    The European cosmetic products market, with a value of € 80 billion, is certainly an attractive target for every company. In addition to brand importation, the European market is also interesting for third-party producers that can take charge of manufacturing commissions. At the same time, exploration of the EU market is a challenge, as the complex regulatory structure, restructured in 2013 and constantly implemented, often poses obstacles that can hinder and discourage companies. Knowledge of the critical issues is fundamental to implement a strategy that makes exportation to Europe perfectly achievable.

    In this webinar, ChemLinked invited Mr. Matteo Zanotti Russo, the owner and founder of Angel Consulting to detail the EU (+UK) cosmetic regulations, including the basis of the EU regulation, the differences between EU and Chinese approval procedures, the detailed procedures of exporting cosmetics to EU (+UK), common mistakes and best practice during the exportation, etc.

    2. The Requirements
    3. What to do, Step by Step
    4. Common Mistakes and Best Practice: How to Make it Easy
